Srinagar is a station on the 119 km (74 mi) long Kashmir railway that started in October 2009 and connects Baramulla to Srinagar, Anantnag and Qazigund. The railway track was to connect to Banihal across the Pir Panjal mountains through a newly constructed 11 km long Banihal tunnel by 2012, and subsequently to the Indian railway network after a few years. As of Spring 2013, the rail tunnel has not been opened, and progress remains slow due to lack of funding. The railway system, proposed in 2001, is not expected to connect the Indian railway network until 2017 at the earliest, with a cost overrun of 5,500 crore rupees. Wikipedia
